    You know, I've seen some damn long descriptions of where people live, and I was just wondering how freakin' long of a location they actually allow you to write in here. Looks like it's quite a bit. Oh well, if the space is here I'll use it!!! :)

    GET RID OF THE CLEAR FIELDS BUTTON

    Man, that's a pain. After a well thought out reply, my mouse slipped just a little too far to the right.

    Can it at least be moved over a little bit? Or am I the only moron who has accidentily missed the submit button by a bit?

    Just a friendly request. MOVE IT!!

    I don't see the need for removing it myself (those buttons are each kinda big in most browsers), but I can't see any harm in it either. The situations in which you have to change username/password during a browser session are (or should be) very rare, and emptying the reply field by hand takes maybe a second at most when I realise I'm ranting too much. I don't think anyone would miss it if it disappeared.

    Well, I didn't really expect much of an agreement from other people or anything (I figured I was the only one clumsy enough to do it ). I was just hacked off when my really long post disappeared.

    Maybe it could just be eeked over to the right a little? Even on my 22" monitor with the largest text setting, the two buttons are separated by less than 1/8 inch. Overshooting with a boomslang mouse isn't all that hard I suppose.

    Son of.... crap. I just did it again. Maybe I'm really stupid, or maybe it's just this oversensitive Razer mouse, but that really is frustrating. I'm holding you guys responsible for computer damages if I ever do it again.

    I allways "rightclick/copy" my whole post before clicking any further. It keeps me from bad surprises.
